We are North Carolina's only statewide professional association for ALL volunteer managers. Our members range from those serving in 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, to those employed in local and state government, to individuals in the for-profit sector and everyone else in between. Our members come from all walks of life, but share a similar passion and dedication to the field of volunteer management.
Administered by the NCAVA Certification Committee, the certification program is part of NCAVA's strategy to enhance the professional identity of volunteer administrators. The goals of the program are to raise standards, increase knowledge, and improve performance of volunteer administrators in North Carolina. The program provides a means to document competency and signify excellence in the practice of managing volunteer programs. The designation CAVNC, indicating a Certified Administrator of Volunteers in North Carolina, helps employers identify the most qualified and committed professionals.
